This just in--a genuine typo disaster from a colleague of mine.


We've all seen those silly lists of bulletin typos, etc. But here is a real life screw up by my secretary. Seems that we have a cadre of volunteers who usher at funerals . Today we gave a lunch to thank them for their ministry. At the lunch we handed out the funeral guide that we share with families. It has a pull-out sheet for pre-planning purposes. Here's the way item H reads H. Wishes regarding flowers (Please check the appropriate box.)
____ Give to shit-ins
____ Place on grave

By the way, we also have a very well organized shit-in ministry.
Cheers,

I laughed so hard that someone came in to see what was so funny. That is just too good.

Oh dear....explaining that one could be a bit tricky.

That is priceless.

ROFL. But I suppose a shit-in would be a good place to scatter flowers, no?

Apostle John said...

I had a friend who said he was preaching a Palm Sunday sermon and was talking about Jesus riding a donkey, and for some reason when he was talking, the words that came out were "and so Jesus got off his ass." He was in tears. Even though the congregation and all of his friends were laughing hysterically.
